Faster Than Sound on tour featured on BBC News

Tuesday 2nd August 2011

Faster Than Sound, the pioneering experimental series based at Aldeburgh Music’s facilities in Snape Maltings, Suffolk, brought one of its exciting projects to London last week.

Brainwaves, by Mira Calix and Anna Meredith combines science, visual art and music to explore the connections inspired by the brain and sound.

Visit the BBC News website to watch an interview with the composers as they prepared for the performance at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall last Friday.

The next event in the Faster Than Sound calendar features a specially commissioned work from the award-winning Christian Marclay on October 1st, when he will collaborate with the composer, performer and improviser Steve Beresford and a local brass band.
